This week is very much of films about families. To start, on Tuesday we have a repeat screening of Tully, the story of how a night nanny changes life for fraught mother-to-be Marlo, played by Charlize Theron, who already has two boisterous kids and a useless husband. This is our BabesInArms screening and starts at 11.00.
We follow on with a Spanish duo of films, both based on true-life family memories.
Tuesday evening’s film, Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle, is a documentary about Julita Salmerón, who fulfilled her dreams as outlined in the film’s title, only to have the economic downturn in the 2008 put all this in jeopardy. Based on 400 hours of footage in various formats, Julita’s actor son Gustavo creates an eclectic portrait of his larger-than-life mother and her family, which won the 2018 Goya Award for Best Documentary (Spain’s Oscars).
